Spectrum News NY1 provides consultations to teach our cost-effective model for 24-hour newsgathering.

NY1 has provided comprehensive consultations to start-up cable news channels including London's "Channel One" and Telenoticias in Miami. NY1 has also provided short-term consultations to Sapporo TV, TV Asahi, Fujisankei, Nippon TV, Czech Independent TV and NHK.

Consultations cover video journalism, microwave newsgathering, machine control and automation, and automated pre-taped playback. A minimum consultation is approximately two hours and involves a detailed overview of our operation, a tour of the facility and a question-and-answer session with senior management. More comprehensive consultations take place over a period of time and can guide a client from the planning phase to the launch of a new operation.

NY1 can structure a consultation for a new operation, or an existing channel that wants to upgrade its operations. Consultations are tailored to fit the needs of each client.
